Familiarise yourself with our team – Production Engineer

What is your name?

Lewy

What is your job title?

Production Engineer

What does a typical day at Quantum Detectors look like for you?

There is no such thing as a typical day, due to the variety that is involved every day in my job. Some of this includes checking technical drawings, calibrating sensors (at the Diamond Light Source X-ray set), constructing a new Merlin detector, or training new Production Technicians within the Quantum Detectors production department.

What did you do before you came to Quantum Detectors?

I initially studied engineering but decided to pursue a career in photography as I am quite creative at heart. However, I decided to jump back to my engineering roots, working in toxicology for 11 years before starting with Quantum Detectors in the production department.

What about your job do you enjoy the most?

My favourite part of my job is the variety that it provides. Every product is really quite unique, therefore requiring a different approach and perspective of thought.

If you had any advice for someone wanting to pursue a career in Production Engineering what would it be?

My main piece of advice is that being wrong isn’t always a bad thing. Mistakes are made to be conquered and the more mistakes you overcome, the more you will learn and develop as a Production Engineer. So, don’t be afraid to try, because even if you are incorrect, you will have learned something.

Can you tell us what you like to do in your free time?

I have many hobbies outside of work including, photography, playing guitar, clay pigeon shooting, mechanical watch repairs, reading, writing, sketching, and my favourite of them all: watching a lot of movies.
